Classroom 360 is a complete tour of my classroom as designed for the 2012-2013 school year. Each post highlights an aspect of my room with photos, a detailed explanation of it's purpose, and often times videos. Be sure to check out all the other posts.
This is my "updated" student display board for the new school year. I wrote about the original version last summer and featured other ideas for displaying student work as part of my Setting Up the Classroom Series which featured photos, tips and ideas for setting up an elementary classroom. You can read about the other areas featured in that series here.
This board worked so well for me that I decided not to change it up too much. Last year my color scheme was aqua and lime and this year I'm going with my Bright and Cheerful color scheme so I added a few bright colors into the board to reflect that. It was a VERY easy change.
I also added a new cursive alphabet above the board. I loved that it was a perfect fit.
I use this board to display student work throughout the year, but at the start of the year I use it to help everyone learn the names and numbers of each student. Each square has a student number. I will soon add their names and a headshot photo of each of my new little friends.
Just for reference, this was what the board looked like last year. I liked it just fine, but thought the additional color splash was a good touch for this year.
